Nice pic's. A bit bigger would be better.

Very strange angles and positions....

Might want to add a little bit of background to the pictures....

very clean bike though...

Anyone wants to clean my bike in exchange for photography lessons ? =)

Oh, forgot to mention. Don't forget the rule of thirds.

I was having major problems getting them up...it started out as a quick picture of the bike for myspace or something and it turned into a hour long photoshoot, lol!

Now what do you think?

The 1st picture is an interesting angle but its boring; probably the better of the three. Widen the aperture to blur the ground a bit so its not so definitive. The 2nd picture, not sure what your composure was. The 3rd picture, try to find an interesting background instead of a tree. Remember, the background is just as important as the foreground.

I totally agree with the background advice. Perhaps something a little less cluttered to really bring out the bike. However, aside from the crookedness from the first shot, I think the ground is so uniform that it creates a sort of blunt contrast between smooth plastic and corse asphault. Now, if it were cracked and dirty it would make much more sense to blur it. Thoughts?

One of the reasons I prefer my big lens when I use my old SLR. Puts the subject in sharp focus and blurs everything in front and behind.
